The China Effect on Emerging Countries and Dictators

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 2, 2011


The author is making the point that China is in line with dictatorial regimes who are eschewing the traditional forms of loans and wish to remain as dictatorial despots.

from The Beijing Consensus- (Stefan Halper)
This emergent society of states isn’t structured like its Western counterpart. There is no commonly accepted theory of global civic culture, no acceptance of particular moral responsibilities, and no shared obligation to act on global questions such as human rights, good governance, or climate change. It’s defined less by what it is and more by what it isn’t. There is no community as such, and certainly no common narrative on universal norms. Instead, there are loose relationships that rest only on a firm respect for two things: national sovereignty and international markets.
